Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz 2008

The pages of advertisements in the newspapers this week can suggest only one thing: some new wine releases from Penfolds.  Penfolds' Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz from 2008 is a multi-regional blend sourced from vineyards in South Australia - with major parcels from the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale

Tasting this wine, you can see that Penfolds are trying.  The wine has a very evident aroma of plums, with oak in the background.  On the palate, some length and vanilla oak.  It's quite pleasant in all.  84 to 85 points.

Abv: 14.5%
Price: around $20
Would I buy it having tasted it?  There's nothing wrong with this wine, it's just not what I'd buy.
